Volleyball District Champions
The Volleyball District Championships were held at Carre’s Grammar this year and included a masterclass for all competitors from Alex of the Lincoln Cannons. St George’s Academy had teams from both the Sleaford and Ruskington campuses, and the Under 15 Boys met each other in the semi-finals. It was Ruskington who won the battle of the campuses, placing them in the final against rivals, and favourites, Carre’s Grammar.
The Ruskington boys (consisting of Euan, George, Nathan and Taliesin) played an absolute blinder, and not daunted by the task in hand won the first set, before narrowly losing the second set. With everything to play for in the third, they won 15-12 taking the crown as District Champions 2019.
The Ruskington Under 15 Girls team were also successful in qualifying for the finals, but sadly lost out, still taking an impressive second place. The Ruskington Girls team were Crystal, Demi, Lizzie and Phebe.
It was an enjoyable and entertaining tournament, and we wish to congratulate to all our teams for their efforts and fantastic attitude, but special honours go to the Ruskington U15 Boys for becoming the District Champions.
